"Meet Ove. He's a curmudgeon - the kind of man who points at people he dislikes as if they were burglars caught outside his bedroom window. He has staunch principles, strict routines, and a short fuse. People call him "the bitter neighbor from hell." But behind the cranky exterior there is a story and a sadness. So when one November morning a chatty young couple with two chatty young daughters move in next door and accidentally flatten Ove's mailbox, it is the lead-in to a comical and heartwarming tale of unkempt cats, unexpected friendship, and the ancient art of backing up a U-Haul. All of which will change one cranky old man and a local residents' association to their very foundations" -- from publisher's web site.

The funniest and saddest book all in one, not your everyday read ! Narrator George Newbern
gives an excellent performance in the audio version and makes the characters very endearing ,
even grumpy grouchy Ove who is hiding his golden heart is forgiven and well-liked by all ( especially the reader! )at the end.
